2019 Tony, Best Musical (2 hrs., 30 mins.) This unique and stunning musical by singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and director Rachel Chavkin follows the overlapping mythical love stories of Orpheus & Eurydice and Hades & Persephone. The action unfolds in both a stylized New Orleans setting and Hades’ stomping ground, The Underworld. As for the score, think New Orleans jazz melded with American folk music.
